A MAN was left bleeding on the floor after he had been stabbed outside a pub, a court has heard.

Myles Jason Paige, of Milton Close, is standing trial at Winchester Crown Court accused of wounding with intent following an incident outside The Oak pub, in Cherry Tree Walk, on Easter Sunday 2022 (April 17) in Basingstoke.

Officers attended shortly after 9.30pm following the incident in which a 32-year-old man sustained a serious but not life-threatening injury to his neck.

South Central Ambulance Service previously told the Gazette that the man was in a life-threatening condition when they attended the scene at around 9.48pm and was taken to hospital.

Paige pleaded not guilty to wounding with intent in May last year. On Monday, April 24, a further charge of unlawfully wounding was put to Paige, to which he also pleaded not guilty.

The trial was opened by prosecutor Sian Beaven who delivered her opening statement to the jury. She told the courtroom that Paige had stabbed Jamie McKay outside the pub.

She said: "On the evening of April 17 at The Oak pub in Basingstoke, Paige was in attendance and at approximately 9.45pm a man (Mr McKay) approached the pub and he was carrying a carrier bag and a bottle of water. He (Mr McKay) looked into the window and was looking to see if anyone was inside."

The courtroom heard that Mr McKay was looking for someone called 'Reece' who he believed had oral sex with his girlfriend. The court heard that 'Reece' was not inside the pub.

Ms Beaven continued: "Paige was overheard inviting Mr McKay to move away from the pub camera so the two of them could sort this out.

"Paige is clearly shown to punch Mr McKay in the head, the pair are separated by other people.

"A short time later Mr McKay returns when Paige is leaving on the street and again Mr McKay is seen holding a carrier bag. At this point, a scuffling breaks out between the pair during which Paige stabs Mr McKay to the neck."

She told the courtroom the altercation happened in a blind spot but was seen by witnesses.

The court heard that Mr McKay "fell to the ground" and was "bleeding profusely" from his neck and Paige was "seen on the CCTV fleeing from the scene".

Ms Beaven added: "It is anticipated the defendant will deny stabbing Mr McKay."

The trial continues and is expected to last four to five days.
